INSPIRE’s skilled team of scientists and analysts is dedicated to making science understandable by applying innovative technology for effective solutions.
OUR EXPERTS DELIVER RAPID, CONSISTENT RESULTS THAT ARE VALUED BY CLIENTS FROM ACROSS INDUSTRIES AND GOVERNMENT AGENCIES.
Our scientists are best known as the original developers of Sediment Profile Imaging, and our staff have more experience than anyone in acquiring and interpreting these images. Our team has expanded from this core focus to include expertise in seafloor, water quality, hydrodynamics, and watershed assessment: capabilities that provide support to a full range of coastal and ocean projects. We start by reading the history of the seafloor through a combination of optical and acoustic methods, including an innovative camera that “optically cores” sediments and gives us a worm’s-eye view. These detailed images are combined with high-resolution acoustic maps to provide an unparalleled view of the seafloor as a basis for site assessment. Our company was formed to address problems associated with understanding seafloor and water column dynamics, from basic habitat mapping to assessment of both natural and human impacts.
INSPIRE Environmental is a new small business that represents the collective resources of Germano & Associates, Inc. and CoastalVision, LLC.
